Flowers are a beautiful color -- slice open a mango, and you have the color of Amplified. This bloom has outstanding substance and a ruffly form. A nice citrusy sort of fragrance is another plus.

It increased like gangbusters the second and third years. I would characterize it as a great grower here in Zone 8.

Relatively strong and direct sunlight never affected the color of Amplified at all.
